  1. I want to share my recent experience at Watson's..Wonderful is a good adjective but it comes up short as I was treated more than wonderful. Rex Aaron, Brandi, Chopper and all the folks that work there treat customers the way customers should be treated. They're are lots of good boats but not many good honest dealers around. I can reccomend Watson's Marine without reservation. In fairness I've known these folks a long time. But this was my first major purchase and I couldn't be happier with both boat and process of buying.
  2. Gonna play around with it today. Like to keep my stuff in good working condition. If needed in will get new moon lite connectors. Dont fish at night much but I really like these lights
  3. I didn't check voltage. Did use a a prong into wire and it lit up
  4. I recently bought a 2013 Skeeter FX21. It has jacks for the black lights but they appear to be old Stan Sloan jacks. Don't really know. I have Moon Lite full moon and half moon. Love these lights. I have power to jacks but my lights won't come on. Took them out and used a wire brush in case it was corrosion. Didn't help. Do I need to purchase new jacks from moon lite? Need some input please.
  5. I'm glad you like the Crank! i'm on the road a lot and was just thinking I should check to see if it arrived yet. Hope you catch many many fish with it. Thank you.
  6. Hey Colonel! Call me sometime 606-434-9146. i'm in White Pine TN now. Still a manufacturers sales rep. Some fishing. Mostly hunting. G5 if you're into archery is best line I have. I think some leppers from yesteryear were asking about you a few days ago. Fall fishing, maybe?
  7. Thanks! Appreciate it.
  8. I've heard a lot of good things about this brand of fishing rod. Wondering if any of the folks here have any info on ALX Rods? Small company in NC that's doing quite well or so I hear. Had this in wrong place, I think. Probaly should be in this forum.
  9. Top quality finished rods. There popular amongst the BBC crowd!

  11. Gotcha, there's a lot of difference! I'd like to ask about dealers but I don't want to bash anyone publicly. Can you call me when ya get a minute. Rick 606-434-9146. I live in "metropolitan ' White Pine--maybe we could go fishing sometime
  12. Well I hope you enjoy your new boat for a long time. I also like Garmin and have 7 in screens. Tell me more about learning to drive it. I've had Ranger for the past 20 years. Slower hulls but no real learning curve involved. Not concerned about credit scores but am concerned about price. Will likely go the website and build one and shop around. I don't know but have been told that if you shop a couple dealers that trade-in values might differ. Thanks for replying
  13. I am thinking of getting a new or new to me boat for next year. I looking at Nitro as the pricing is attractive. i understand bait and switch sales approach common to Nitro/Tracker. You see attractive pricing with underpowered packages. Sometimes the electronics are less than desirable. But I'm looking for input on the boat and trailer. I know a couple guys that have them with no issues. Z8 and older. I read reviews and there is a lot out there that is very negative. I would expect that some of that is reflective to the sheer numbers sold. Not trying to start a boat war but could use some input from folks who have experience with Nitro Quality and warranty/service. Info on trailers too, please.
  14. Got friends that have wireless trollers.Claim it's great for pulling/pushing crappie baits. I would stay with Minn-Kota or Motor Guide, never know when ya need repairs and parts are available for those brands.
  15. I've owned two. Had 1994 ranger and sold it to my friend so I could buy a new 1999 518dvx, which I still have. I am thinking o re powering as the boat is great. I wouldn't go so far as to say ranger is better than other brands but I've been happy.
